How about using a minimalistic (even more than the one you tested)
xorg.conf file?

I would start from here:


(remember to make a backup of your current "xorg.conf" file)

In addition to manually set X server, there is also "xrandr" that may
help you with your dual screen layout but true is that I'm not sure about
the status of "xrandr" when using the nvidia closed driver, I mean, I
dunno if all of the options are available :-?

How about attaching a full /var/log/Xorg.0.log after a crash and a
"good" Xorg.0.log
